No one can ignore the startling increase in product recalls. It seems as if every day there is a new recall to watch out for to ensure your children’s and your own safety. The import of unsafe products has been occuring for many years, but the frequency inwhich unsafe products are finding their way into the US has rapidly increased since 2004.
The leading cause of these recalls is high levels of lead. Dangerous levels of lead can result in serious health risks. The Consumer Product Safety Commission Reform Act was passed on Oct. 30th and aims to help monitor the import of dangerous products into the country. Safety testings will also be increased as a result of the Act, making it much less likely for products with high levels of lead to sneak into the US marketplace.
